Opportunity Available - Senior Reporting Engineer - London

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi all,

Please find below an opportunity we have here at Blinkbox Music – London
I’ve posted the job spec below, though I would emphasise that this role is much more postgresql focussed than the description below might suggest.

We require a skilled database developer to take ownership of our existing reporting platform, and be in a position to maintain and improve workflow to be both accurate and scalable.

Any interested parties may contact Taher Shihadeh <taher@xxxxxxxxxxxx>


About blinkbox Music
  We believe what you like is more important than what you know. So
  you don't have to trawl a massive catalogue - all you need to do is
  enter a single song, artist or genre to get started. From here the
  music you love keeps on coming - you get personalised radio stations
  full of songs that match this search. So if you search a specific
  artist, you'll get their songs, with other similar ones thrown
  in. As we get to know you it just gets better and better. It's free,
  easy and personalised - and potentially never-ending. And there is
  also a paid subscription based service for our most demanding
  listeners. We work in an exciting industry, using cutting edge web

  where every team member can make a difference. In 2015 we were
  acquired by Australian born Guvera. Our parent company is also much
  more than a music streaming service. Currently present in 20
  countries and with millions of users, with access to millions of
  songs from local and international artists. The acquisition is just
  the beginning, and the stepping stone into Europe. Our joint plan?
  To be in up to 20 new markets by June, and up to 100 markets by the
  end of the year.
